People gather in support of McGann family at Falsk in Roscommon

A number of people have been gathering at the McGann family home in Strokestown since early this morning.

The gathering is in response to the fact that midday today was the deadline for the family to leave their home according to a repossession order granted by the High Court last month.
Today is the latest development in a saga which began last December when the family were evicted from the house.

Incidents at the home afterwards, which had nothing to do with the family, have seen four people charged in connection with violence.


Tom Dignam from the Common law Information Centre in Donegal is one of those in Falsk today.


Colm Granahan is from a group calling itself the anti corruption task force.
